When streaming a video from a free movie site does it get stored on your comp?

Q: When streaming a video from a free movie site does it get stored on your comp?

Hi guys, as title states. I am trying to figure out, where if anyplace, does a movie that you stream from an online free movie place get stored on your computer? I have searched all over and I can not figure out where 30 gigs of hdd space that has been eating up after watching movies...??? I want to delete that crap off my hd.

I am running Vista x64 bit SP 2. Any help is appreciated, thanks!!!

Preferred Solution: When streaming a video from a free movie site does it get stored on your comp?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I'm watching a video on my computer that I opened up in Firefox earlier, that's not available online anymore. I guess its 'buffered' in my system. I assume this means its stored in my cache. How do I access this?

my issue is this - i'd like to find a website where i can stream movies that are genuinely free. by that i mean no sign up, registration, or credit card info. i just want to go to a website stream (or download) the movie and watch it on my tv.
whenever you google "stream free movies" , you get hundreds of hits. several of the hits even say something to the effect " stream free movies, no registration, or signup" , but when you go to the site and try to stream it, they want you to register which includes giving your credit card info. they all say your credit card won't be billed unless you make a purchase or upgrade (yeah, right). i really wouldn't mind "signing up" if i could do it without the credit card - after all this is the internet (shark tank).
one last issue - with the credit card, after you enter your credit card billing info, the card is always declined. i used a mastercard that i use day in/day out, submitted the billing info - declined. i immediately called the credit card co. and bank. i was assured the card was in good standing ( and was also told that there were no recent inquiries made to verify the card. (hmm, they declined my card without attempting to verify it - what's going on ? ) 2 days later i used a different card and tried the same thing with a different company. again, card declined - what's going on.

Main problems: Programs take a while to start-up, windows takes a while to start-up, all icons on desktop take a while to appear when starting up (just generic icon for a while until computer actually starts responding), video and audio is choppy.Already went through the Malware attempts and disk scanning, defragging, and all that:http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/ind...p;#entry1586320Not sure if it's software or hardware related as I'm not sure what CPU temperatures I should be expecting and the computer has always run hot.The previous HD on this computer got borked and ended up getting a new one thats much bigger and faster (7200 vs 5400). So far from all the different hardware testing programs everything seems to be passing.Any ideas? It's been driving me crazy and sure is making it hard to get work done.Thanks!

A:slow comp, especially on start-up & jumpy streaming video

How much RAM installed?How much free space on C:? How large is C:?I find that..."slow" is a relative term and when applied to a system...much depends on what is installed and running.Don't know if you have looked at remarks by Quietman7 at Slow Computer-browser Check Here First; It May Not Be Malware - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/87058/slow-computerbrowser-check-here-first;-it-may-not-be-malware/.FWIW: From the time that I press the power button...until all icons are present and system is accessible...normally takes 2-3 minutes for me (which is probably a good average).Problems with video files...depends heavily on system capabilities and origin/locale of the video source (online or hard drive).Louis

My computer is running Windows XP Pro with 1 GB of RAM. I have no problems going to internet sites but when it contains a video and I try to watch it, the video will start and then stop and start again so that I cannot watch a complete video. I am using Internet Explorer 7. One way around this is to wait for a long time until the video is completely downloaded. I used to be able to watch a streaming video. My computer is virus and spyware free so I do not believe this is the problem. Has anybody experienced this? Can somebody suggest a way to troubleshoot this problem?

ok 2 part problems.....
1) My computer will not load and play WMV files...itll play .rm, quicktime, youtube vids, but not wmv files. So if i go to www.break.com and one of the videos is a wmv it wont play...WHY!!!??

2) i have a Canon zr30mc digital video camcorder, and im trying to get the videon onto my computer. it is hooked up through the DV in/out, and opens with Nero Vision. everything it begins to record the video to the hard drive or to a CD, nero messed up and crashes...what can i do?

thanks everyone

A:2 Problems...playing Wmv Streaming Videos, Capturing Video From A Dv Camcorder To The Comp

I can't address the second one -- you might want to query Nero support -- and give an exact description of the "crash" -- if there is an error message you need to report it fully.On the first, right click on a downloaded .wmv file and select "properties".What media player is it currently associated to open with? Typically this would be Windows Media Player by default.But you can try others -- such as Real Player if you have it -- or download Videolan which plays just about anything:http://www.videolan.org/You can change the default player association through the file properties "change" dialog -- which I think works best if you have VistaBy the way I had a similar problem in Windows Vista trying to play .avi files online in Internet Explorer. Changing the association -- through the individual file properties -- back and forth resolved it.

I have a Qosmio X770 with NVidia 3D playback. I am looking for the best free video player for playing 2D movie clips in 3D.

Toshiba Video Player works very well but I can only get it to play MP4-AVC format files. Is there a way to add codecs so that it will play other formats?

NVIDIA 3D Vision Player plays all formats but when in 3D mode there is no access to the controls. Volume can be changed with function keys and the video can be paused with keyboard combinations that must be remembered but you cannot fast forward/backwards or access the slider to change the video position.

Both are reasonable solutions but neither is perfect. Is there a better option out there? I tried StereoscopicPlayer but could not get it to work and it is limited to 5 minutes of play anyway.

A:Qosmio X770 - looking for best free video player to play 2D movie in 3D

Freeware software as a perfect solution?
I don’t think that you will get such software just for free…

How about convert the 2D to 3D movies with 2D to 3D converters?
The KM Player supports also the 2D to 3D feature but does not support all formats… you must pay for full version to get the full support.
Of course PowerDVD also great but not for free.

How to force IE 11 to ask for saving credentials again for just one web site, after having accidentally sellect not to remember password for that particular site. Please, take into account that:

- I'm totally aware that storing credentials is not a good security practice, but in my particular case this is what I need to do.

- I know that reseting IE or similar approachs will do the job, but doing that I'll lost more tan 70 web sites credentials. I need a solution not involving loose all the web credentials stored.
- I also know that there is way to do the trick "lying" to IE using a modified but similar username, but this only works in some web sites, depending on the kind of login mechanism used. In my particulare case this trick also does not work.
- I also know that there was a registry hack for this particular problem, but this does not work with IE last versions.

We have movie night every once in a while, but when we do, we need to run RCA cables out from the garage stereo (for the audio) to the laptop that's connected to the projector (the video part). The run is about 25-30 feet.

With this set up, I need to run an extension cord out from the same outlet that the stereo is plugged into, as to avoid the 60 cycle hum.

There is an outlet closer to where the laptop/projector is, but first, I get the hum since that outlet is on the main panel and the stereo is on the sub-panel. The second problem is that with wires, there is a chance of someone tripping in the dark.

Right now we run the wires in a channel where the grass meets the concrete, but again, we still need to spend the time running the wires. And they aren't pinned down, so someone can still trip on them.

And with the extension cord next to the RCAs, well, there is still a small amount of hum.

I bought a Bluetooth streaming device, but there was a weird delay. At first, the delay was minimal, maybe a few seconds. But even at that point, it was hard to watch a movie.

Then it got worse. So bad that the movie started over, well, just the sound did. And it was doing some really weird things. I closed out VLC and the sound kept going.

I thought that it may just be that one movie (it happened to be Back to the Future) so I tried others as well. Different formats too. WMV, AVI and MP4. They all did the same thing.

Also, I had to really turn the stereo up. Usually it&... Read more

Does anybody else have a problem with viewing a Netflix movie through the computer on the TV? I have a cable with audio on both ends so nothing is wireless.

The movie starts loading and starts OK but 12 minutes into the movie, it stops and says "Your internet connection has slowed. We are adjusting the play rate to prevent further interruptions" Then the movie starts again and plays 12 minutes, then the same message pops up and takes about 5 to 7 minutes to reload. This continues throughout the whole movie. It is so irritating. It is just like having 10 minutes of regular network movie and 15 minutes of commercials.

I heard that it is a Netflix problem, that you used to be able to view the movie on the Media player where you could load the entire movie then watch it without interruption. Now that Microsoft Silverlight is required to play Netflix movies, they won't let the entire movie load, they only let segments at a time load. If this is true it sucks!

Then I heard that if you change the bit rate on the download, it will help to make it "flow" better. Didn't say what to change the bit rate to.

I hope someone can help with some suggestions on how I can watch a Netflix streaming movie without it stopping every 12 minutes.

I set up streaming to my 360 and PS3, and for a while it worked and it seemed that when I added new videos to my directories, the systems synced directories with my win7 machine.

Now, it's not working.

My directories are on my secondary hard drive, so I set that up in the Videos folder. I removed the directories then added them again, but now my 360/ps3 is only picking up my TV videos from iTunes, not my movies folder.

If I just right-click and click Share for the entire secondary hard drive, can I play video?

I've been having problems with connecting to all of the stations provided by Virgin Radio's online streaming site on two of my computers. I've done plenty of troubleshooting on one of them and cannot determine the reason why I can't get the stream to work.

The specific one I would like to get working is this one. It works just fine on my desktop, but doesn't work on 2 of my laptops right now. The player loads up just fine and the ads with sound are audible. When the interface that shows the song and artist loads up, I just can't hear the music. I've tried re-installing Flash from the Adobe site, re-installing Java from Sun Micro's site, switching from IE8 to Firefox 3.5, uninstalling Firefox 3.5 and trying Firefox 3.0, accessing the stream from this site via WMP 11 stream, accessing the Toronto station, restoring my hosts file to default settings, uninstalling Spybot S&D and I have no idea what I can try next!

I have this EXACT same problem on two laptops, one of which has Vista Home and the other has XP Home which are both legal copies. Both of these copies were freshly re-installed from scratch as well just last week. Yet, my desktop with Windows 7 and latest version of everything listed does not have this problem at all.

I would appreciate any further suggestions in solving this issue as I'm very frustrated and completely stumped at the moment.

The other day I was browsing a streaming site and an Avast message popped up saying it blocked an attempted infection. After this Windows Update wanted to restart my computer. This happened twice with seemingly no update taking place as there was no message being displayed during shut down and start up. A third time Windows Update wanted to restart my computer and again I obliged but when the computer was shutting down the Update text being displayed was unfamiliar. After I was able to use the computer again I checked the Windows Update history and everything seemed legit. It was displaying a number of failed and successful updates going back weeks but the times for the updates I suspected might be virus related appeared to be from Windows after all.
So my next step was to start scanning my computer. I did several full system scans with Avast, Malwarebytes, and Spybot S&D and nothing malicious showed up with any of them. I was still worried though because my internet was going very slow which was strange. I use my computer to play poker and sometimes for banking so I don't really want to take any chances so I decided to take it to a local computer shop to have it reformatted. My question is when I get the computer back should I do anything to make sure it's clean? I will never surf a website I don't trust again so hopefully the chances of being infected in the future are nil. As far as system specs go I run Windows 7 and use Avast as my antivirus.

Two days ago when I tried to access the site I got...  'Windows Media Player cannot play the file. The Player might not support the file type or might not support the codec that was used to compress the file'..
Earlier that morning several windows updates were installed..thinking that might be the prob I deleted them..wasn't the prob.
Checked all settings etc everything seemed ok.
Checked firewall.
Ran Malware bytes and Ccleaner.
Tried several   other players ..same result..no access.
I checked with others who use the site and no one else had a prob.

So I am absolutely stumped and hope you can point e to some  setting or something that Ive overlooked  that might resolve the problem :D

The only thing I didn't see mentioned was rebooting. I'm going to assume that you had to do several in order to do all that you have listed.
Is this the first time you have accessed the site using W8 as your operating system? Were the other users who mentioned 'no problem' also running W8? Have you checked the media site to see if there is an updated codex available for W8?

Apologies if this is in the wrong section. I'm not sure quite where it should be.

My problem is I have a desktop and laptop both running Windows 7 and in a homegroup. For convenience, I store lots of video clips (5-10 minutes long mostly) on the laptop. I edit etc. on the laptop but like to play them on the desktop as it has a much larger screen. The desktop is new and the processor is a 2.95 gigahertz Intel Core i3 530 (Multi core (2 total) Hyper threaded (4 total). The display is Nvidia Ge Force GTS 250. I have plenty of disc space on both machines. From my understanding (which isn't that great on technical matters) this should be plenty to play video. If I play directly from the computer, for example a stored clip or one in iTunes on the desktop, it runs fine and the picture is excellent.

When I use homegroup on the desktop to link to a video clip on the laptop it starts playing fine. There will be no problems for a couple of minutes. I have tbbmeter running on both machines and this will show a steady stream out from the laptop and in on the desktop. Then suddenly it stops. tbbmeter shows no activity in or out but the progress bar on the application running the clip(e.g. media player) still progresses across the screen though the picture and sound are frozen. After a minute or two the picture will start running again but at about four times normal speed. When it starts the activity shown on tbbmeter starts again.

since most of the games that i used to install ran too slowly, i tried using Gamebooster 2.2 for optimizing performance while gaming.

After the 1st try, when i switched back to normal mode (from gaming mode), all my video files are appearing in- what i think is- low resolution. The BR rips especially are appearing too thatched/pixelated and also a little burnt. I have attached a few images to help visualize what's happening.

I tried restarting the system, changing the monitor settings and reinstalling the graphic drivers. Nothing worked. What could be the issue? I suspect the gamebooster software to be the culprit as this started only after i ran the s/w but i cannot find anything that has been tweaked.

I recently installed Windows Service Pack 2, actually three times after reinstating my computer software to the original state by erasing and reinstalling the full software install CD on my computer's hard drive for Window XP Home. I have no problems playing games with my new FX 5200 Ultra video card by BFG, but I am at random times getting the annoying green screen that blanks out my videos I am streaming or playing(happens when I am streaming more often). Then after that happens usually, the computer reboots or shuts off. I never had this happen before. My computer's memory tests ok so why can I play games with this never happening but when I am streaming or watching video through Windows Media Player, etc do I get the "green screen blankout" and then often the shutdown of my computer? I have 512 MB of system memory and 128 MB of video memory! I use System Mechanic and it shows I have at least half of my memory even during playback so what is the problem here? I can attach my system computer file of my information if you like in an e-mail if it will help. AND YES I HAVE THE DIVX CODECS.

Well, it seems u dont have a hardware problem. this problem occurs only when u r watching videos. so i guess its the media player. take my suggestion, stop using it. Download this pack: KLite Codec Pack. I think the latest version is 3.2. Its got all the codecs u need to play compressed videos, and dvds. Its also got an advanced media player which can play any video u open it with like wmv, dat, mpg, rm, mov, avi, divx..... of course, the codecs for these formats r included in the pack.

Hello guys, I'm new here and I need some help.

I got a laptop, working on Windows Vista Home Premium and I have met up with a problem.

I realize that everytime I visit youtube or any other streaming websites with a video or audio file being loaded, my other media applications like Windows Media Player 11, Real Player, Windows Media Player Classic, iTune etc will cease to work. They will either not play an audio/video file or that the audio/video file will not have any sound when I press play. In general, my media applications will not work simultaneously if I'm loading online streaming files. The media applications will only work if I close the my internet browser, be it Firefox or IE. I have never experienced this problem with my old PC which uses Windows XP).

To give a better view of the problem, here is a scenrio of the problem:

open my favorite music player(Window Player, iTunes, Realplayer etc) and have it start playing a song (it will work perfectly fine.)

now go open a browser window, and go stream some music, say Youtube or Imeem.com,
open an online game, which has a soundtrack that plays in the background constantly.

now, while the internet based application is streaming/ playing a song or video, go to my media player, and try to play a NEW song or video.

I was wondering if it is possible to display some of the video files (along with the audio) that are on my laptop on an HDTV. Could I do this by purchasing an external video card that has (let's say) an HDMI output that I could then plug into the HDMI input on the TV? If so, could anyone recommend an external video card that won't break the bank?

Thank you for your time. Any and all help is appreciated.

I have a website that offers videos for the sony PSP and cell phones. You can download these movies from the PC perfectly fine but for some reason you cant download the movies from a PSP or a cell phone.

If you try to download the movie from your cell phone you get a 403 error saying that you don't have permission to download the movie.

If you try to download the movie from your PSP it looks like you download the source code of the movie and not the movie itself.

Here are the mime types i have in my .htaccess
AddType video/mpeg mp4

The movie format for the psp movies is .mp4
The movie format for the cell phones movies is .3gp

I will appreciate any help. thanx

A:When I try to download the movie I uploaded to my site it doesnt work.

I dont think you can download movies directly to the PSP, You need to have a USB cord and download them on your computer and transfer it to the PSP

You put the USB cord into the PSP and it opens a folder and you put the videos into the Movies Folder ( Dont know if it's called movies or not but you can look in your PSP manual / google )

Hope I helped

This has been happening on and off ever since I started with Win 10 and its always very annoying .

System just hangs, no error message, no bsod, just complete freeze and loud hum.

I cant say I can remember having issues watching youtube videos, its the streaming of live content such as filmon. Sometimes I can watch filmon for days and not have the issue and then randomly it will start again. Today I was watching hypermole playing on twitch tv (live) and it just happened. Getting tired of it.
I can also report having all my video content display as a green screen after using hyper v although that may be totally unrelated.

As far as I am aware, I'm using the latest drivers for my graphics, I always try update everything. I have attached the log files as requested.

A:Hang up/Crash when streaming video, especially live video

Hi m1a1t,

Welcome to the 10forums

I'm not a specialist when it comes to freeze problems, but I do have a tip (or 2 when talking about reverting back the changes)
IObit software is known for causing problems, I would highly recommend that you remove it and revert back the changes it made when it comes to drivers.
DB3 may install corrupted or the wrong drivers what may cause problems,Malwarefighter is IMHO garbage,Advanced SystemCare may cause more harm than good
About the uninstall program I can't tell you anything, because I have no experience with it and I prefer to keep it that way.

Software: MS-XP SP2 Media Player(s): MS-Media Player
Power DVD Player

Media Used: DVD disk and video movie download (Cinemanow.com)

Issue: Video Display has slow update and loses frames on both DVDs and Video Movie downloaded files.

[1] The computer has always had this problem; this is not a new issue.

[2] I have tried adjusting the Display settings provide by XP with no measurable improvement.

[3] Sound is not affected and has good quality.

[4] When MS-Media Player is used and is minimized to the task bar (mini screen presentation) the Video Display quality improves, but is not acceptable.

[5] Only about half of Video Movie can be viewed. Image freezes and play button is enabled. When play is clicked, the Video Movie restarts from the beginning.

Does anyone have a suggestion, I am out of ideas.

A:Video Display has slow update and loses frames on both DVDs and Video Movie downloade

Wow, it just might be the ancient processor you have and the very small amount of Ram you have. Video really eats up resources and I think you dont have the power to run it without problems, The key here is that when you minimize your preview window in Media Player, you have less problems.
